Benjamin One – The Drum Role

ben

Bristol producer Benjamin One releases his début album, ‘The Drum Role’ on the new Universal Magnetic imprint.
The album is a great mix of electronic beats, experimental hip hop, grime, dubstep, electro and more. From the first track, ‘Better Up’, which sounds like a mix between classic Neptunes production, El-P and Prefuse 73, I was hooked.
At 16 track deep, this is a pretty long album, but it entertains all the way through, taking you on a journey through Ben’s infectious influences and showing his unique take on electronic music.
There are some tasty bundles to be had, including special USB versions and t-shirts. Check it out now via bandcamp.

Benjamin has cooked up a tasty 4 track EP, delving into the dark realms of jungle, dubstep, grime, electronics and more. Although “The Shifts” ep is a slight, well…shift, from the electronic hip hop we have heard in the past, but it’s a logical shift and still echo’s the left of centre electronic hip hop you would expect.
Out in April on Rebel Instinct Records, be sure to come along for the ride!
